You've got some very still water there, Sandy. Makes for a really great reflected image, especially condsidering your platform isn't as stable as what some of us work from. From the map, it looks like you're out there pretty far into the not-too-many-folks-around area.

Your right not1word...I have caught the slack between the turn of the tide...the water is like black glass...really more beautiful in real life than in a photo...and its where there pretty much aren't any folks around ;) which makes is even better...

And I have a good balance and a steady hand...seems to work well ha ha

See ya later from Sandy who had a great day ;)

A Golden Star for the balancing act and a wonderful shot ~ what nasty man eating animals lurk under the mirror of the water I wonder???

Nice work ~ ciao nick

No nasties here Nick...other than perhaps a big bass fish...the odd goanna that may be feeding on some carcass...water dragons etc....perhaps some eels and little baby fish ;)

Most definately worth the risk ha ha

Now up north...that would be different as you would have crocodiles up there...but here I am lucky to have a safe and lovely place to go ;)

Thanks for the Golden Star...Iam really pleased you have visited my gallery again...

See ya from Sandy

That is funny Sandy but I could have sworn that I saw an old shot up chair just drift out of shot ~ can that be so?????

scml on May 11, 2009

No such luck here Nick...this is in a national park..I don't think guns would be allowed :)

But if I find a unclaimed chair drifing by...I promise to put it somewhere safe and you can visit to sit in it haha

See ya from Sandy

Sorry that my chair escaped for a moment, Sandy. Someone told me about its escapades, and I came and rounded it up again. I promise that it won't trouble you any more. Dinner is on the way.

No problems not1word...but I have to tell you...I am fading away to a shadow waiting for my meal...damn it better be good :)

See ya later...Sandy ;)
